    I promised myself I wouldn't post this because of all the people that wouldn't believe me.. But I don't care. My polish HEN [​IMG] laid her first egg... This is how it started... I was emailing someone then i heard..'
    **THE EGG SONG** But I did not know it was the egg song and thought she was being attacked or something... So I went outside and I found two eggs in the middle of the coop! I only have one chicken that lays white eggs, so I know it was her. Then once I am inside, I put the eggs in a bowl and BAM!!!!
    **THE EGG SONG!!!!*** I went outside and there it was... A THIRD FREAKING EGG. No one was home so I know it wasn't like my family playing a prank or anything but I SWEAR!!! My polish, JoAnne laid THREE eggs in ONE SINGLE DAY!!!

    Here is the picture!! I promise people this is not a joke.

    I know they are pretty small, but I don't care. I got eggs!! These are my first eggs! I am cracking one, and putting the others in the incubator!!!

    I have 4 chickens, but the other three are only 4 months OLD. She is 8. And yes there is a rooster. Or else I wouldn't be trying to put them in the incubator??

    I still get startled by one of my hen's egg song. I yelled at my youngest last week, because I thought she was trying to catch the chickens again. [​IMG] But it was just Fiesta doing her egg song, because Baby Girl was in the favorite nest.

    You gotta let us know when Joann lays her next egg. I'm betting after such a heroic effort, she'll wait a couple days lol. But you never know!
